Special Child

Special Child
by Sharon Harris
You weren't like other children,
And God was well aware,
You'd need a caring family,
With love enough to share.

And so He sent you to us,
And much to our surprise,
You haven't been a challenge,
But a blessing in disguise.

Your wining smiles and laughter,
The pleasures you impart,
Far outweigh your special needs,
And melt the coldest heart.

We're proud that we've been chosen,
To help you learn and grow,
The joy that you have brought us,
Is more than you can know.

A precious gift from Heaven,
A treasure from above,
A child who's taught us many things,
But most of all - "Real Love"

This completly sums up our love for our Christopher! It brings tears to my eyes every time I read it. We are so grateful that heavenly father chose us to be his family.

Okay, now I'm in tears. This sweet poetry touches my spirit. It so perfectly describes your little "Ger" and his chosen family.

Whenever I think about Christopher I always think about how I KNOW he was meant to your son and to be a part of your family. And what a blessed boy he is to have all of you!
Love you guys!!!
